Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Vintage 2010
Format 750 ml

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a protagonist of the vintage. The fruit is deep and dark with rich levels of extract, intensity and flavor. It goes far beyond your standard cherry and blackberry to include plum cake, spice bread and bacon­wrapped prune. Nothing is obvious or monochromatic about this wine, everything is nuanced and ethereal. Tenuta Nuova is distinguished by linear mineral notes, characteristic of this single­vineyard site and in 2010 those features are especially well­defined and pronounced. The tannins reach a level of suppleness that is almost impossible to find in the sometimes prickly and acidic Sangiovese grape.

If there is one thing Giacomo Neri has mastered, it is harvesting at optimal ripeness: He knows his property and his vines better than most and it shows. Collectors will want to put this wine aside ten years or longer. His newest release from the exceptional Tenuta Nuova vineyard cru is a wine of soaring intensity, beauty and perfection. It's one of those wines you can't put down until the contents of the bottle have sadly dwindled to the final drops of precious liquid. The style is bold and opulent and the 2010 vintage is especially nuanced with the subtle beauty that only Sangiovese can display. Anticipated maturity: 2017 – 2035" Monica Larner

"The 2010 Tenuta Nuova is a drop-dead gorgeous effort from Giacomo Neri. A classy Brunello, that immediately impresses with its wonderful purity and lovely fresh character. Sedictuve aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries are followed by a mix of sweet spices, pretty floral, savory herbs and fresh m inerals, which all come together and leap from the glass. This full-bodied Brunello is wrapped in beautiful silky tannins and displays a gorgeous seamless texture. Overall, this is a complexly compelling wine that demonstrates remarkable balance, depth and focus from start to finish without missing a beat. Today, the wine is already offering so much and quite accessible, that being said this will also prove to be age worthy as well. This may be the greatest Tenuta Nuova I have ever tasted, eclipsing some of the recent greats from the estate like 01 and 06. The 2010 is truly magnificent wine that should not be missed. (Best 2016 - 2032)" International Wine Report

"This is very muscular for the vintage. It shows lots of stones, dark fruits and hints of tar. Full body, firm tannins and a chewy texture. Ripe and rich, but shows tension and intensity. This is racy and structured, tannic now but will show its greatness in 2018. As it should be from one of the masters, but the new hand of his son Giovanni Neri is showing through with a touch more finesse" James Suckling
